2011 RT battery

My 2011 RT has 73,000 kms and I think it is time for a new battery. It gets sluggish if left for a few days. It is stored now for the winter with a trickle charger on the battery but I plan to purchase a new one soon. What battery are you buying to replace the original and where are you buying it? I am on the west coast of Newfoundland.

Re: 2011 RT battery

A bit isolated seems, so thus my reply to use Amazon to your door. Find the size on the side of your old battery and then the equal in Yuasa sealed AGM here:

Re: 2011 RT battery

I installed a Shorai battery last spring and it has performed really well.
